Default Which bond formula to use?

Hi, im working through asm right now and im struggling a bit with bond pricing questions. When questions use the basic formula i usually get them right, but i almost never notice when i need to use the premium discount formula. I was hoping someone might have a for identifying which formula to use for a problem, or just generally when the premium discount formula would come in handy.

Generally when you're dealing with premiums or discounts of bonds, you would want to use the premium/discount formula (obviously). Another time to use the premium/discount formula is when you are dealing with callable bonds. At times, using the premium/discount formula can be more useful.
